Iraq, BAGHDAD

—Iraq's Ministry of Works and Municipalities could not carry out all the drinking water projects it planned for 2006 because insufficient funds were dispersed, according to Director General of the ministry's Water Directorate Ghazi Naji The budget allocation for drinking water was about $62 million USD for 2006, but the amount actually dispersed was only about a third of that, Naji said.
